Monique Lhuillier shares her thoughts on Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress The big news in Hollywood is the engagement of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who have been living together for more than seven years with their six kids (one their biological child and the rest adopted). No wedding date has been set but Angelina is proudly wearing in her left finger the “dazzling diamond” ring which is, according to wild guesses, 10 carats and worth $1 million. The question (aside from the wedding date) of the hour is who will design Angelina’s wedding gown and how it will look. A story in the latest issue of People magazine included the sketches of two A-list designers (not exactly the ones who would be chosen by Angelina to do it), one of them Hollywood-based Filipina Monique Lhuillier. Shown here is Monique’s sketch as published by People mag, described as “a Chantilly lace gown with a beautiful V-neckline, low back and a high slit.” Monique Lhuillier was quoted as saying, “Angie has style. She takes a classic look and adds a sultry, sexy edge and makes it her own.”
Kim Kardashian has announced that she is filing for divorce from her husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage. Is this just another celebrity marriage that looked better on paper and in the media, or was it a great way to grab some media exposure and make a quick buck. Three Vera Wang wedding dresses each purportedly worth $20’000, $400,000 worth of Perrier Jouet champagne, invitations from Lehr & Black estimated at $10,000 and $750,000 (!) for catering for the 500 guests at the reception, $15,000, 10-tiered wedding cake with chocolate-chip icing and black and white decorations made by Hansen’s Bakery were all comped. According to an earlier publication in The New York Post the couple are set to make around $18 million.
